Jessica Calix's Reflective Notes

    If I got one thing out of Migration and Culture, I would say that I learned the real reasons of why people immigrate into The United States before taking this course I always thought that people came into this country in search of a better life. Although this is true, I learned that it much more than that. I learned that many immigrate here not only due to poverty in their homelands with no opportunity for advancement but also for reasons that would have never crossed my mind such as political asylum.

          This course has given me the opportunity thanks to the readings and the field trip to Nogales as tools in helping me view immigration in a different context that otherwise I would not have a clue.
